Event: The Great Irish Bake 2012

Temple Street Children’s University Hospital is calling on cooks nationwide to put their pinnies on and have their ovens at the ready to participate in the Great Irish Bake on 30th November in aid of the hospital.

From coffee mornings, to office bake sales, to tea parties in schools, there are endless ways for bakers to get involved and raise these much needed funds for the Children's hospital. The money raised will go directly towards the hospital’s main fundraising project for 2012/13; which is to renovate one of the oldest and busiest wards. 

This ward, fondly known to many as 'Top Flat', is home to some of Ireland's sickest children, a high percentage of which are children with Cystic Fibrosis. This is vital to the hospital and will allow them to give the best possible care to the children who come through the doors each year.
